Hotkeys/keyboard macros??

<< < (2/4) > >>

Allen made the perfect solution for this, in the ahk programming school section.

Maybe he could post it here? :)

Following your indications, Tomos..
Here's PasteDate.ahk:

--- ---; Author: jgpaiva
; Script Function:
; Send the current date to the active window

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.

  FormatTime,CurrentTime,%A_Now%,yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss
  tempClipboard := clipboard
  clipboard := CurrentTime
  clipboard := tempClipboard

It's really simple to change the format, just change the stuff after the last comma on this line:

--- ---FormatTime,CurrentTime,%A_Now%,yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss

Either solution looks great. Yes, I have installed Texter and it seems that their description is a little confusing (having lived in Europe for over 20 years I 'share your pain' over date formats!). In Tester I simply defined a hotstring called "d s" (without the space) and it returns the system like so: 14 Feb 08  which is my system format. And another called "d t s" which returns the time, too:14 Feb 08 @ 15:46 hrs:  I also have a number of often used signature and such which are very handy. The only trick is to name them with 'non-naturally occurring' strings.

thanks jg -
I thought you were going to wait for Allen there!

Super, works a treat (I decided to remove the seconds.)

What's this about an Autohotkey school :-\
Paste the Date

Make a function triggered by a hotkey that will paste the current date and time into the users currently open application (i.e. notepad).

1. When they trigger the function instead of pasting current date and time, ask them what format they want first, and give them some choices, like:
04/20/06, 22:00
April 20, 2006
April 20, 2006, 10:00pm
--- End quote ---
maybe when I've figured out SQL-Notes equations I'll finally try and figure out ahk and have a go at the rest of the assignment (or maybe something easier to start with)

if it does the system date that's good
I usually use the above format so if I using it in any columns where I can sort, it will sort logically/sequentially
you can tell I don't write a lot of letters :P
I might try it again, but strange thing here - it seems to disable my home and end keys - do you use it with Clipboard H&S? - maybe they clash? it seems to be okay without CH&S running
(I actually have direct access installed but shouldnt because this technically a "work" machine [at home though] and it's one of those free non-commercial-use liscences. So I'm slow to use it - also I write very little! [of to do some drawing work])

Tomos: yep, i was about to wait because his is so much more complete. But then you specified a hotkey and a format, and that makes things sooo much easier ;)

I'm wondering if this solved jpar5's problem.
